stretching out reishi myc culture with honey LC?
    #4549081 - 08/17/05 11:40 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

I, as well as a few other people here, have recently been looking around for reishi spores. And although it seems easy to find reishi spores in capsules, to be taken as a supplement, I can't find any for cultivation.

So I guess I have to get a myc culture, probably from Spores101 (since they are the shit and all). But my question is, would it be a good idea to stretch out a myc culture syringe with honey/karo LC like I would with cubensis spores? Or would this make the strain degrade like a cubensis that has had too many g2g transfers?

And also, once I get my reishi to start fruiting, how can I get it to sporulate? I heard that this can be difficult. Would it be as simple as increasing airflow to allow for proper shelf-like formation?

I've been looking all over the net for detailed reishi cultivation teks, but all I can find is general instructions. I guess I'll just have to get the GGMM.

thanks a lot guys! Hope this post doesn't get lost with all the other reishi posts in here today!

pm me an addy and I'll send you a reishi print. It may take a few days to get it out, as I work a lot of hours and am busy. Reishi spores are not that difficult to get. Once the conks form, just let them grow, and after a week or two, they'll start dropping. Not all will drop spores, but out of each flush, usually one or two will. I put wax paper under the growing fruit as it drops spores in the growing area, then collect it when I get home from work. Definitely not a sterile procedure, but so far they've grown out on agar ok without contaminants.

Nice info.  I was wondering if it was difficult to get a reishi print.  Could you cut the fruit off and put it on a wire support and let the spores drop into sterilized water in a small jar and cover it for 24 hours?  I'd really like to be able to keep my reishi going from my own spores/cultures. 

Thanks.  :laugh:

That might work. The thing is, you need to isolate a good fruiting strain if you start from spores. Once you have a good fruiter, you can keep the mycelium alive indefinitely in the refrigerator. Most of stamets' strain are over twenty years old and still produce very well.
